The Youth Disability Advocacy Service is committed to ensuring this website is accessible to people with disabilities, including those who use assistive technology and accessibility features.

This website has been developed to provide an accessible website to the widest possible audience across a broad range of browsers, operating systems and devices. It aims to conform to Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2 (WCAG 2.0), as developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This means in particular:

  • all functionality on this site is accessible without JavaScript, Cascading Style Sheets or graphical images.
  • the navigation and content is accessible to screen readers.
  • print style sheets are provided to make printed pages clear and free from unnecessary material.
  • links are friendly and descriptive URLs and have meaningful link text which can be read by screen readers.
  • images on this site have meaningful alternative ‘alt’ tags which can be read by screen readers.
  • page sizes have been kept to a minimum to cater for a range of connection speeds.

While we have endeavoured to ensure the accessibility of content on our website, some external resources to which the website links are not completely accessible. Where possible, we provide a variety of contact details for the organisations responsible for inaccessible content, so that users may pursue content in accessible formats.
